Took a trip to Blackberry farm with my school age niece and my mother, who is a senior. The park was clean, well run, and priced well within our budget. My niece said she had the best time ever, and this is a Disney savvy kid. She enjoyed the hay ride, train ride, merry go round, and fell in love... More

Great place to take younger kids to, we enjoyed every bit of our time here. We spent more time at the play ground. We rode the train, but would have liked to have more time to ride the paddle boat. The kids were amazed by the old time way of living and the amount of work the blacksmith had to... More

Very cute place. Like walking around like a park cute small rides for little ones. They have a cute little train the little ones will love. Take a lunch and enjoy being outside with nice surroundings. Or they have snacks to buy.

My family recently went to Blackberry Farm for the first time this weekend and we had an AMAZING time! Despite it being just minutes down the road, we had never before visited the park and I was so happy we decided to go this weekend once we arrived. Parking is abundant (free) and children under age 2 are free ($8... More

There was a lot to keep the kids busy.. It wasn't crowded so they could enjoy most of the attractions. They loved the hands on places and the restored house and museum.Benches were plentiful for me to sit on and watch them. Picnic tables to have lunch on. A merry-go-round was fun too. The best was the train ride, we... More

The polar express special was excellent. Lots of fun and great value at only $5 a person. We listened to the story narrated by a teacher in the school room, made some craft stuff in the carriage house, rode the train and a wagon ride, stopped off at the warming station for a quick warm up before heading to the...

It really doesn't matter what time of the year one goes it is always a good time - fun and educational at times. There is plenty to do and during the summer months kids and learn about blacksmithing, pottery making and other skills from our history. The museums are also very interesting. It's a great place for a family outing.... More

for $8 and adult, you can't go wrong with this. Once you pay the entry fee, everything is included inside except for the food. There are pony rides, merry-go-rounds, barns with animals, paddle boats, an awesome train ride that's even enjoyable for adults. Food could improve. it's decent but not high quality. inexpensive which was surprising.

We took our kids here throughout the years they were growing up. Now the park is even better with upgrades like paddle boats and a great play area. The ponies, carousel, train, and wagon ride continue to be visitor favorites. You can buy food or bring a picnic lunch. The thing I value most now, though is the living history.... More
